Hundreds of CCTV Employees Under Investigation
Since former CCTV deputy director Li Dongsheng
was sacked, the finance channel director Guo Zhenxi,
current CCTV director Hu Zhanfan, and 100 CCTV staff
members have been taken in for questioning.
Some were since arrested.
Commentators analyze that the anti-corruption campaign
has spread from the Central Politics and Law Commission
to the Propaganda Department.
It is a further purge of the Jiang Zemin forces
within the regime.
Caixin reported that the 49-year-old finance channel director
Guo Zhenxi has been taken away by Jilin prosecutors.
Guo Zhenxi directs both the financial channel
and the Advertising Economic Information Center.
He has an important role in CCTV, as he oversees
both news and operation.
In fact, when Li Dongsheng was sacked last December,
Guo Zhenxi had been taken away for interrogation.
He reportedly had accumulated two billion in assets
through his two positions.
Sources in Beijing revealed to an overseas Chinese website
that almost all CCTV hosts are millionaires,
and managers have at least 100 million yuan
in personal assets.
While CCTV cannot be shut down, the significant figures
such as the station director Hu Zhanfan have been detained
The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI)
and the National Audit Office are directing the investigation.
The CCDI cases are conducted by Hubei prosecutors,
and the Audit cases are by Jilin prosecutors.
So far, at least 100 CCTV staff members have been
investigated and some arrested.
Hua Po, Beijing political analyst: “The regime mouthpiece
has been the hardest hit by corruption.
CCTV, in particular, transferred assets to Zhou Yongkang
when Li Dongsheng was the former deputy director.
Xi Jinping intends to control the power of the ‘pen’
by conducting a cleaning purge of the media."
It is rumored that Jiang Zemin’s mistress Li Ruiying
has been removed from her anchor position.
In late April, Hu Zhanfan reportedly obtained tens of millions
of yuan via insider trading.
A CCTV source said, “The Audit Office has stationed
itself inside CCTV.
Suddenly, CCTV is in chaos and everyone is in a panic.
CCTV, known as ‘the pockets of Li Dongsheng’, is doomed."
Lan Su, commentator: “This time it’s not just aimed
at one of the few corrupt officials.
This signals the anti-corruption campaign has gone from the
Central Politics and Law Commission to the Propaganda,
possibly targeting the pushing hands behind CCTV
such as Liu Yunshan.
Zhou Yongkang, former Politburo Standing Committee
member and Liu Yunshan, incumbent Politburo Standing
Committee member, are both members of the Jiang faction."
Hua Po: “A number of high officials from the mouthpiece
have committed suicide recently.
There might be more ‘suicides’ or imprisonment.
I don’t think Xi Jinping can tolerate the mouthpiece
becoming an independent kingdom."
The gun and the pen are the so-called success guarantors
of the CCP’s revolution.
The Central Politics and Law Commission is the gun
and the Propaganda Department is the pen.
In 60 years of ruling, under the suppression and threat
of guns and name smearing by the pens, the CCP
has murdered more than 80 million Chinese and enslaved
the Chinese both mentally and physically, said commentators.
In the persecution of Falun Gong launched by Jiang Zemin
in 1999, Li Dongsheng produced a CCTV self-immolation
program in which actors Wang Jindong, who was seriously
burnt but his hair unharmed, had an intact bottle between
his legs, and school girl Liu Siying was still able to sing
though her throat was slit.
The many questions have propelled UN organization
UNESCO to confirm that the self-immolation film
by CCTV was manipulated and false.
To implement Jiang Zemin’s persecution campaign, former
secretary of Central Politics and Law Commission, Luo Gan,
has worked with Zhou Yongkang to conduct crimes never
seen before under the sun—live organ harvesting
from thousands of Falun Gong practitioners.
Outsiders have pointed out that since former Chongqing
Municipal Public Security Bureau Director Wang Lijun
exposed the coup plan by Zhou Yongkang and Bo Xilai
when he fled to the U.S. Consulate, the sequential earthquakes
in the CCP Central are exposing the rotting natures
of the Communist officials.
